Why is my computer running SO SLOW

This question is not answered
Here is what I have done.
I keep it defragged
I have run a startup inspector and found nothing out of place.
I run an up to date ZoneAlarm antivirus
I run spywareblaster
I run spybot
 
Still, it runs slow. I am talking about clicking on an icon and it taking much longer than it used to for the program to start up. It takes longer to scan. It takes longer to print. It takes longer to do everything.
 
Does this sound like a virus or do I have a mechanical problem? If so, any idea where I can go for advice? When I google I just find sites that suggest what I already do.
